BoardVitals has arrived for ATI Nursing students! Cue the celebration. This NCLEX prep tool is one that will certainly come in handy for you. We’re sharing an in-depth overview about this quite handy and adaptive product. Take a look!
What is BoardVitals?
BoardVitals is an adaptive quizzing engine (Not sure what that is? Don’t worry, we’ll explain in a bit.) that offers extensive content review and helps nursing students, just like you, prepare for the NCLEX.
From building a customized quiz by category using detailed and visual rationales to using a timed mode for practicing speed to comprehensively quizzing in an adaptive setting, there are three ways to practice. And after all practice makes perfect, doesn’t it?
What do students love the most about BoardVitals?
Well, there’s a lot to love. Let’s break it down.
- 3,000+ RN items
- 1,000+ PN items
- Items are written in NCLEX-style format
- Alternate format items, think fill-in-the-blank, hotspots, audio and more
- Deep rationales that thoroughly review the concepts, plus art and visuals
What does adaptive quizzing mean?
The NCLEX exam is a computer adaptive test that features alternate item questions. Let us explain:
Computer adaptive testing selects questions for you to answer based on your response to similar questions earlier in the test. For example, if you miss a question on pharmacology, you may be presented with a similar question later in the exam. If you answer the question correctly, you may not be asked about it again.
How do the categories break down?
As we mentioned, within BoardVitals you are able to quiz by category. This certainly comes in handy if you are weak in an area or two. So what’s the breakdown?
- Ante/Intra/Postpartum and Neonatal Care
- Critical Care
- Emergency Care
- Genital and Reproductive
- Health Promotion and Maintenance
- Immune System
- Physiological Integrity
- Psychosocial Integrity
- Renal and Urinary
- Safe and Effective Care Environment
Do I have access to BoardVitals right now?
Some students have BoardVitals built into their product suite. This means that 120 days prior to graduation, you will be able to access this prep tool as you study for the NCLEX. Not sure if your school has access? We recommend that you reach out to your instructors. If your school does not provide you with BoardVitals, not to worry!
